Toronto FC hired a coach who wasn’t very good, played really badly, alienated one of their best players, got smoked by D.C. United, then fired that bad coach. Chris Armas now joins Farid Benstiti at Unattached FC. Mexico’s football federation is allegedly trying to get sketchy to avoid a stadium ban effecting their men’s national team, while Olivia Moultrie got her pro debut.
